Well I see that the developers have given stable a special
meaning. I thought I was clear when I defined my stable as
never crashes now. Some writers seemed to have scary words
that some day I will get an update that will ruin my updated
alfa version system. It isn't happening. Why does Ubuntu put
out the early versions?
I think it is to get the early version used. It is fun to me.
And I will try not to sue stable, even though it is...
